Flora of Andaman33- 110111-PKA1: I had seen this herb in shade of Licuala. Looks like some Araceae sp.? Date/Time: 22-12-2010 / 01:15PM
Location: Near Mud Volcano site, Baratang, Andaman.
Habitat: Wild
Plant Habit: Herb


–  Only 2 Amorphophallus species occur at Andaman: Am. muelleri and Am. longistylus. Because I was unfamiliar with the berries of longistylus I have asked Amorphophallus expert Wilbert Hetterscheid and according to him the shape of the fruits on the picture is more towards muelleri. As this species is widespread and variable the markings on the stalk are of little help. So not 100% certain but most likely Am. muelleri.
